Ok, will do, soonish.

After taking a look at the current 0_6_0 branch all is much clearer :)
I (of course) had to try the newest version on that branch out, so I've
modified my patches that were not yet applied and added a couple of new
ones, they're now at
http://koti.welho.com/vskytta/patches/w3c-validator/
cachalot.ods.org is still down, so I'll be dumping my patches at the URL
above from now on.

I also tried running validator with mod_perl (actually, I thought that I
had been doing that for the past half a year, turned out to be a nasty
config bug => no mod_perl), and received interesting results: onsgmls
(1.3.4, RedHat 7.2) gives me:

Line 1, column 0: end of document in prolog ("end of document in
prolog") 
  <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN"
  ^

This happens both with Apache::Registry and Apache::PerlRun
(mod_perl-1.26, perl-5.6.1).  Any ideas?

Yes, and the new config file system will make this a lot easier.

Side note: the current temp file handling looks nice indeed, but does
IPC::Open3 work on Windows/others?  STDERR?

Ok.
